Director's Review Open and Closed Requests
After the July 1, 2019, implementation of the new Information Technology Professional Structure (ITPS), the State HR Division received 1,044 requests for a Director’s review. Initial IT allocation cases were submitted by agencies and/or employees that disagreed with the initial ITPS allocation determinations. The graph below represents IT and Non-IT requests received and closed. Specifically, the green bar represents all prior and current pending cases received up to that month and the blue bar represents cases closed within that month.
Each case is thoroughly reviewed and the DR Specialists do not rush to a conclusion. It is not possible to provide an expected date of completion as each case is unique and the time frame to complete a review varies and is unknown until the review occurs. DR Specialists have been assigned agencies and IT cases from the same work unit are grouped together, therefore, cases may not be reviewed in the order they are received.
